Blinking of Verizon sign and then nothing happens, right? This is an indication that the phone has a corrupted program. Upgrading the firmware of your phone will resolve the problem.

The best thing to do is to contact the manufacturer and have them upgrade the firmware of your LG Chocolate. Since the phone was purchased through e-bay, ask the manufacturer if they would allow you to pay the their service (unless if you have the receipt and if it's under the warranty).

That is the best suggestion that I could provide. Thank you!

Need to unlock Motorola Razor V3xx cingular to work on Verizon


It's not possible as the two networks are not compatible with each other for the V3xx. With other phones it may be as easy as swapping SIM cards.

My phone is broke nd its veriozon and i switched it over to page plus is there any way i can get a new phone for free


No. Verizon will only "give" you a new phone if you sign a 2-year contract with them. If you want a cheap phone, start a new account with Verizon and sign a 2-year contract. Or you can buy a used phone cheap on eBay or Craigslist and stick with Page Plus.

I need an altell phone thats good n free lol for altewll


Altell is now owned by Verizon Wireless. You can often get free phones that are quiet good if you sign up for a 2 year plan with Verizon Wireless.

If you have an existing plan with Altell and no phone (lost or broken) I don't think you could get another for free, but if you look on eBay or craigslist I am sure you could find a used one for cheap.

My phone just blinks vcast now


I work for verizon-take your phone to a verizon store, have them swap it out for a new one. If your phone is under warranty you should be able to swap it out for a new one. If you are in contract the WARRANTY IS GOOD FOR THE LIFE OF THE CONTRACT. Call our Customer care line, don't go back to the store.
